“Increasing need for collaboration among organizations and rising standards for interoperability between cloud services and existing systems are some of the factors influencing or driving the growth of hybrid cloud technologies in the global market,” the report states. “However, challenges related to data security, compliance and legal issues, to some extent, are expected to hinder the growth of the market.”
Growth May Be Restrained By Security and Legal Challenges
Though hybrid cloud solutions offer many benefits, there are lingering issues related to data security and compliance which are hindering full-fledged growth. Many organizations implementing hybrid cloud architectures are struggling with cloud security management, and this has become a significant problem. Also challenging growth is the presence of different regulatory and compliance requirements in different countries. For example, privacy laws in Europe and Japan demand that private data, including emails, be stored in data centers within those regions.
